Giggle On Survivor of Suicide Loss Interview Series
Socrates once said, “The comic and the tragic lie inseparable close, like light and shadow.” The Two Jims embodied light and dark, as do we all. With the darkness comes light. With light we Giggle On!
Aside from my love of encouraging people to laugh, Giggle On was created as a way for me to talk about my experience with depression, mental illness and the aftermath of suicide. I learned a lot shedding buckets of tears.
I am not a mental health professional nor do I provide counseling services. I am simply doing my part to raise awareness about issues that touched my life.
